    Coldest Ride 2017-2018

    OK, thought I'd start another coldest ride game, with fewer (no) rules. Essentially, just post the lowest temp you've ridden in for more than a few miles for the 2017-2018 winter. Extra details would be nice, but not required, i.e. gear worn, where you went, etc. I'll post the names and temps of the top 10 in this first post, as they are generated.

    I'll start... I rode 27 miles to work yesterday morning and it was 46F when I started. Didn't pull out my electric gear yet, just wore my Tourmaster Transition 4 jacket and Caliber pants, with liners.

    Ride safe and stay warm out there.

    All temps in Fahrenheit. Most recent changes in red.

    On Sunday, I rode 60 miles from Ely, MN to Silver Bay, MN in 37 degree temps. Heated grips, heated seat, long johns... and typical other gear.

    It's almost funny when a guy from Texas starts this!!!


    "Too often. . .I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen.?

    This won't last long, I left TentSTOC last month on my way home and it was 44 degrees at 4:30 am I think... I don't think anyone else was planning on waking up for another 5 hrs and 20 degrees.. lol

    Just to start fresh, I was planning on this being for the Winter of 2017-2018, i.e. by season not by year. I'm trying to minimize the rules/requirements, but we do need some boundaries so we can do this again next Winter.

    Everyone OK with that?
